Nisbet Beach villa description

The Lazy Turtle Villa is one of the few beach side villas with private pool on Nevis.
Set between the mountain and the beach, the views are stunning from every room. A private path leads you to the white sands of Nisbet beach. A short walk leads you to Nisbet Plantation, a top rated plantation style inn where you can enjoy excellent dining or simply a cold drink at the casual beach bar. You can set up a tab there for your convenience.
The villa includes a very large porch with 2 hammocks, a fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, a living room with WIFI, TV, and DVD and just outside is another hammock and gazebo nearby.
Our bedroom features Nevisian style mahogany beds with Egyptian cotton sheets. The master bedroom is air conditioned although most people prefer to fall asleep to the magical tradewinds.

We will pick you up at Nevis airport or on St. Kitts free of charge and bring you home where a rental car will await you. We pride ourselves on our service and convenience.


Tennis: Four Seasons tennis is second to none, with ten courts and ample facilities, services and amenities including night play and professional instruction.

Managed by world-renowned Peter Burwash International, the site comprises four red clay courts (two lit for night play) and six hard courts (three lit for night play). Tennis equipment, apparel and accessories are available from the pro shop, located in the sports pavilion.

The Four Seasons hotel is a short drive away and welcomes our guests for Tennis and Golf (see below). Spa treatments can also be reserved at their world class spa.

Water Sports: Lazy turtle is a short drive from Oualie beach resort. There you will find scuba diving, mountain biking, snorkeling, sunfish sailing, sport fishing boats, a windsurfing school, hobie cats, kayaks and day sailing adventures on yachts and catamarans. You can rent boats, windsurfers and kayaks.

Guided sailing trips can be arranged at this location.

Four Seasons beach club is a 20 minute drive and offers waterskiing, banana boating and tubing.

Adventure sports and other activities: The mountainous terrain and beautiful beaches provide the perfect backdrop for horseback riding, mountain biking and hiking.

We will direct you to some terrific guides who can help share the island with you and create a perfect workout as well!

One of our favorite activities is hiking to plantation ruins. Our kids like to figure out the function of each building they discover.

Climb to the top of Mount Nevis! This is not for the faint of heart and a guide is recommended. This is a stunning hike and the view from the top is well worth the effort!

                          Enjoy the privacy of a beachside villa with the convenience of resort living. We will greet you at the airport _ either in Nevis or St. Kitts _ and a rental car will await you at the villa, should you desire one. Start a tab at the neighboring Nisbet Plantation beach club for award winning meals and beach side drinks. Meals can also be prepared in your fully equipped kitchen.

                          This is one of few beachfront properties with a pool. It is located on the most desirable part of the island, convenient to the many places Nevis has to explore; hiking, horseback riding, kayaking, biking, golf and tennis and some of the best food in the carribean.

                          We have been exploring Nevis for over 15 years and would be delighted to share our experiences with you

                          Golf: The Robert Trent Jones II course at the Four Season Resort is world famous and a short drive away.

                          The course provides a dramatic view of the Resort, the Caribbean and the neighboring island of St. Kitts.

                          About the owner: We love Nevis! We were lucky enough to find this paradise 18 years ago, when our parents bought property nearby. We bought the house next door to them. They live there in the winter and love to help our guests find out of the way treasures.

                          Why the Owner Chose Nisbet Beach:
                          Lazy Turtle is one of the only beachfront properties on island. We love the feeling of privacy we get from this house. In addition, we really feel connected to nature there.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                          Lazy Turtle is the perfect combination of privacy and natural beauty. In addition, we strive to make your vacation unique and stress free. Come fall in love!
